Equipped with a 4.5-inch display, 8-megapixel camera, and quad-core processor, the Lancet is LG's first Windows phone in years. It is available from Verizon for $20 with a carrier agreement, or $120 off-contract.
Petite and comfy design
Small and compact, the device is comfortable to hold and easy to maneuver with one hand. Its build quality is solid and dense, without feeling too heavy.
Capable 8-megapixel camera
On the front is a 0.3-megapixel camera and
on the back is an 8-megapixel shooter that can record 1080p full HD video.
Other camera features include LG's camera user interface, and Bing
Vision, which can scan QR codes and translate text.
Signature live tiles on the homescreen
As a Windows Phone 8.1 handset,
the Lancet features the digital voice and search assistant Cortana, and deep
integration with Microsoft ventures like Skype, Office and Xbox.
Talking for hours on end
The device is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon
processor from Qualcomm and a removable 2,100mAh battery that lasted an impressive 19 hours during our lab tests for
continuous talk time.
